The original is a Scottish 6/8 pipe march (I think by Pipe Major John McLellan), so it follows that my ABC transcription can only really be an interpretation of the tune.

Here’s a clip of the Dubai Pipe Band playing the original at a practice night:

And here’s a clip of a ceilidh band interpreting the tune as a jig at a community barn dance:
